Women, veterans, and members of demographic groups traditionally underrepresented in engineering are particularly encouraged to apply. Applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents.
Featuring CUTTING EDGE nanotechnology-inspired research and education efforts towards new materials and new technologies for energy production based on hard and soft materials and hybrids thereof, such as inorganic nanowire/nanoparticle sensitized organic solar cells, thin film CIGS and direct alcohol fuel cells.
Students will learn to manufacture and study new functional nanomaterials and devices for energy applications and technology commercialization of nanomaterials under the guidance of faculty and graduate students from multidisciplinary programs (engineering and sciences). As part of the Materials Genome Initiative, various experimental research modules will be paired up with computer-based modeling.
